[ applau ] the polls are showing that it's looking more and more likely that republicans will take control of the house in the mid-term elections. if democrats lose the majority, nancy pelosi is going to step down as house speaker. the party is going to have to plan for a return to the future without california congresswoman nancy pelosi, as their leader. but i wonder, how would the rest of america, and for that matter, the rest of the world react if nancy pelosi was forced to give up her powerful post? here is a preview. let's watch. ♪ ♪ ♪ the hills are alive with the sound of music ♪ >> ♪ that's the way it should be ♪ ♪ wahoo ♪ yeah

. her previous campaign manager has come out and said she just used the campaign money to pay her own rent which is not legal use of campaign money. i think she will try to just brush that story aside as the typical cross fire that any politician gets into, and try to find her way to the middle on some of these policy questions. >> but in 49 days, how much nondamage can she do to herself when as rachel maddow showed these tapes from mtv, there are tapes in which a candidate for senate for the use, which is what she is now, is discussing openly how people shouldn't masturbate? that would seem to be a difficult sell even in delaware. >> she's going to say it's 14 years ago and she is going to try to not get into repeating those specifics that she got into on that tape. and try to say something that sounds, indicate religiously high minded. that is kind of general. and saying no one should press me on these issues. she may take what she took into a punish you've and now try to play it as a personal issue that should not be questioned. >>> >> 30 seconds, it's a speight impression. does sh

borger, and joining us from new york, cnn political contributor and republican strategist, ed rollins and john avalon, also a cnn contributor, as well as senior political columnist for the daily beast. let's get straight to this tax fight. president obama went out to the fairfield, virginia, doing a little town hall in a backyard. and he was making his case that the you should keep tax cuts for those families making $250,000 anbew, and those making more than that should pay more. number one, the president says that's only fair. number two, he says, we can't afford it because red ink. >> but we can't give away $700 billion to folks who don't need it a think somehow that we're going to balance our budget. it's not gog to hapn. >> one intere, ing int, freddy, to the democrat the first, in the audience, as the president did, that was the local congressman jerry conley. if you go to jerry conley's website, democrat,ni rrengior re-election, a little nervous. probably okay, but probably a little nervous. on his website, he's also a handful of democrats who support extending the bush taxes c
the american people are behind us on these issues and one of the attorney generals said we are doing what congress should have done. >> one comment. this is going to the u.s. supreme court probably going to be a 5-4 decision. they will say the commerce clause applies. five are going our way. i'm going to predict that right now this is the greatest intrusion by the federal government in the commerce laws ever in history that's why they are bailing out like attorney general strickland said and trying to go on the tax issue. we went on that too, there's nothing in the law that allows them to do this. nothing in the constitution that allows the kind of tax they are proposing. they are weak on this, we are going to win. >> greta: alabama, what is your reaction? >> folks in alabama are like folks across the country. they feel disinfranchised, they feel like their rights were trampled. they weren't buying votes with their own money they were using our known buy votes for things we don't want. whether it was ben nelson's deal the deal over in louisiana, in alabama, i think we long for the good ol

's primary results. zero be on your screen. joining us this morning from our news desk is steve peoples from "roll call." let us begin with the headline from the delaware newspaper, anti-establishment insurgency rocks of delaware. o'donnell in shocker. tea party-backed candidates funds. how would she be able to do it? guest: not surprised here. the tea party express came into town against the wishes of some people in washington. spent a lot of money. in a closed republican primary was able to make a difference and up said cassell. honestly hard to see this as anything but a nightmare scenario for the gop, at least in this delaware race. you heard karl rove right off the race and both people on both sides are doing the same thing. host: people did not think she could win this primary, either. guest: two different races. winning a closed republican primary which -- i looked at the numbers, about 60,000 people voted, about one-tenth of all registered voters in delaware. about one third of registered republicans. a very small sample. you get enough of your friends and the excited base out, you c
when such service is extremely perilous. that's "hardball" for now thanks for being with us. right now it is time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show" tonight, from new york. these stories on the table and hit my hot button that is hour. i'm on fire that conservatives have taken their warped hatred of president obama into public schools in this country. parents are shielding kids from watching the president's back-to-school message. can you believe it? what a low point for this country. my commentary on that. plus, reaction from reverend al sharpton and katrina vanden heuvel of the nation. >>> america's mayor ber narrow is showing democrats basically how to get it done. his opponent was too much of a weenie to debate him in michigan, so he took matters into his own hands and crashed the town hall. we got the story for you. >>> and the professor of paranoia, glenn beck, is warning his viewers with a prediction of liberal violence, led by president obama. i will show you some unbelievable tape of the battleground story tonight. and t
congress isn't listening to us. they decided to speak. so the people spoke with a very i would say uniformed voice in a race in particular in delaware that you mentioned. people identified mike castle, with a candidate that j obama agenda, which is out of control spending, tax increases that are planned and job-killing bills. they've said no, they don't want it. whereas, christine o'donnell represents the new kind of candidate that is listening to the people. who is clearly said she opposes spending increases. she won't be voting for any tax increases. she is also going to repeal very bad bills like the government take over of health care. she is pro jobs that's what are seeing this fall. people who are looking at the candidates and saying, who will best reflect what i believe? clearly, they are hearing that message from tea party candidates. >> sean: what do you make of the establishment's slash and burn tactics leading into the primary tuesday and reaction of some after? even mike castle's reaction. wouldn't call her. from the night she won, saying he wouldn't endorse her the day
the republican cannibalism i was ahead in the polls. and, you know, if we can put this behind us and do some damage repair and, you know, then we can turn the two-point lead to a 10-point lead. >> some republicans fear o'donnell will cost them the chance to win the seat joe biden held for 0 years as well -- 30 years as well as deny them a critical seat needed to win in the majority. >> it's clear that the tea party movement has the upper hand in the republican primary electorate. that is not the general election. >> meanwhile, in new jersey, establishment favorite won the g.o.p. nomination to face democratic congressman paul hodes in november. the win was so close against conservative glamante, it was not decided until this afternoon. >> despite all the tension between tea party conservatives and establishment republicans and whether it's a good thing or bad thing that tea party candidates keep winning there are two things that are benchmarks undeniable. since the primaries began more than 4 million republican ballots have been cast over democrats. and in delaware, where christine o'donnell
, not a run. i'm not getting on the train to da if there's running. >> there will be no running from us. we got a golf cart. i got, like, those tony soprano sweats, velour and we'll be smoking. we're in new york, we have msnbc and "time" magazine analyst laura halprin. chris jansing and in washington, d.c., nbc political analyst pat buchanan. i don't know if pat is lathered up by what happened last night. pat, we'll get to you in a minute. i was awakened though in the middle of the night by a three-alarm -- not tweet, a three-alarm column by mark halprin, framing last night in opinion pox lip tick terms for the republican party. >> so apocalyptic. republicans were taking a senate seat, there was a building block to get back to the senate majority. it's gone barring some truly unforeseeable development. absolute binary switch. republicans now almost impossible to come up with a way they get the ten-seat majority. in the longer term it shows the republican party has a huge problem. they've benefit friday the tea party movement so far. they'll benefit in november but maybe having a huge, huge
weather center tracking all of this for us this morning. so are they still in a situation where the waters are still rising now? >> no, the river at least at portage did crest last night. but it's going to remain above flood stage for quite some time. not only across wisconsin, but southern and central parts of minnesota. we've got all these rivers that are actually draining into the mississippi. and we're going to see some issues, i think, downstream from there, as well. so that's issue number one. issue number two is -- more immediate concerns, what's going on in portage. here's where the river crested. the record is is 20.5 feet. it crested just above that last night. and now it's at about 20.2 feet. we're at near record strange. major flood stage, but not expected to come back down below flood stage really until late wednesday into thursday. so we've got quite some time before this river really gets below the danger zone. and what i mean by danger zone is, well, usually after a river crests, we can relax, but because of this situation where you have all of that pressure on this very, v
to the table that brings us to the number one way democrats know their party is in trouble. under a democratically controlled congress americans' dissatisfaction with the federal government has reached its highest point in 18 years. joining when reaction to this list of concerns for the democrats, sandra smith and kate obenshain. you both are smiling: look, if democratic donors -- they are looking out for their business interest they go with the flow. >> it is not a business-friendly administration. businesses still aren't hiring. the end of the day they see health care costs rising, tagses going up. the employees at those 126 companies they gave their money to democrat two years ago. this time they are saying this isn't working out for us. >> democrats are saying the reason is that they are their bets that these businesses are protecting our own interests. it is because they are so shocked they've been burned by the policies the financial institution supported obama in 2008. now they are shifting. something we have to keep in mind the unreported donations. still, even though it l
next to us and then ours was third to go. >> the area is very steep and rugged. it could take several days to get that fire under control. illegal immigrants who cannot get into the u.s. by land coming by sea? authorities just arrested 20 mexicans at san clemente state beach in originange county, california. one woman broke her leg jumping from the boat. meanwhile, the daredevil known as skyscraper man is at it again. dan goodwin climbed up the 58-story millennium tower using suction cups. >> crazy. >> some residents even toasted his climb as they watched him through the windows of their luxury apartments? it's great entertainment really. he was arrested after he reached the top. he calls himself spider dan appropriately raising awareness of the vulnerability of skyscrapers to terror attacks. > >> thing is you get tired of waiting for the elevators with suction cups and then at the last minute will come down. >> meanwhile, president obama detailing his latest idea to jump-start the economy and create jobs with a $50 billion infrastructure spending free and tomorrow the president will
are now learning that more than 60% of u.s. pipelines are aging, and according to the ntsb putting countless lives at risk. trace gallagher has more live from our west coast newsroom, trace. >> reporter: i've got to tell you, megyn the more we look into this the more concerning this gets, five days after the san bruno pipe explosion and we still have no idea what the exact cause was. the ntsb saying, look around the country. there could be thousands, maybe tens of thousands of pipes that are in the same condition the san bruno pipe was in. remember, if you want to look at these pictures, the san bruno pipes were all put in in the 1950s. this is 1948, look at the hillsides, the area, there are very few subdivisions put in here. they were all put in by the 1950s. now we'll show you almost of the same picture of what it looks like today, you'll get a better example. look at the sprawl. on top of all of those gas lines that were put in 50 years ago, and keep in mind that for a metal pipe 50 years is about the life expectancy, look at the sprawl in the same area. all those pipes that we
as. i see it as an opportunity. i'm going to have to face that same hostility in the u.s. senate. they are no different than some of the people i will be serving with this november. if i'm afraid to face the liberal media, how can i earn the voters' trust to face the liberals in washington, d.c. and stand up for what is right? >> sean: a lot has been reported on. we had karl rove on this program last night and the things that he has said. let me run some of the tape and get your reaction. >> this was about mike castle's bad votes. it does conservatives little good to support candidates who while they may be conservative in their public statements, do not events the characteristics of rectitude and truthfulness and sincerity and character the voters are looking for. and we'll see if she can answer these questions. she sure as heck didn't answer them thus far in the campaign. >> sean: your reaction? >> we did answer them on our website. i'm hoping that maybe it is just the fog of war that hasn't cleared yet. i want to give him the benefit of the doubt that when all this seattle --
with washington. let us not forget that the tea party stands for taxed enough already. i think people are very upset with the size of government and they're upset with the spending going on and upset with the direction that the country is heading in. >> the republicans didn't recognize that. it didn't take, you know a political genius to figure out that people were mad as hell and weren't going to take it any more. >> yes, ychris, i do. the republican establishment in washington, yes, i do believe they were taken off stream and i think a lot of the leaders here very comfortable in washington and don't get back to their districts as much and don't travel around the country as much. i've heard, i've seen it and it's not a shock to me. it's a shock to a lot of the people in the building behind me. >> do you feel like you were delivered this huge gift? >> i am not going to count any chickens before they're hatched because i learned a dramatic lesson during the presidential primary in 2008 the voters will have their say and all the predictions can kind of get thrown out the window. ron is doing a v
don't impose them on us we pick them here, you guys for eight years or more than that under bush destroyed the republican party 2006. we lost both houses. you nominated somebody that got less of the vote in california than barry goldwater. now, thank you, we will pick our own leaders. and i think it is an excellent message to send. >> by the way that is the speech that edward dirkson gave. >> twice you have taken us down the road to defeat. we shall not follow you again. >> frightening. that was 1952. chuck, here is karl rove. i want chuck to jump in here, karl rove and sean hannity on fox last night with one point of view. let's listen. >> it does conservatives little good to support candidates who at the end of the day, while they may be conservative in their public statements, do not evince the characteristics of rectitude and truthfulness and sincerity and character that the voters looking for. there's just a lot of nutty things she's been saying. sounds like you don't support them, but i will tell you -- >> i'm for the republican, but i got to tell you, we were looking at ei
's senate g.o.p. primary. >> molly lyon live for us in boston with the roundup of all the results. good morning you to. >> good morning, steve, gretchen and brian. that's right, you know, total upset win in delaware, this is really a big story where the tea party favorite christine o'donnell managed to beat out mike castle. really a political legend in that state for the g.o.p. nomination for the senate seat. castle was a nine term congressman, is a nine term congressman and a former governor and won statewide election a dozen times. was backed by state g.o.p. leaders who aggressively slammed o'donnell throughout the course of this campaign referring to her as a liar and fraud. she proved him wrong, though, showing she could win this election. she won with 53% over castle's 47%. the national republican senatorial congratulated o'donnell. in a brief and underwhelming statement last night. she wouldn't be getting some national support because they don't think she'll be able to beat the democratic challenger in the fall. a very tight race, even right now as the votes are coming in between
